Nasal CPAP Masks
Nasal Masks are the most popular choice for many CPAP patients, who do not like the feeling of the air pressure directly into their nares, but do not need a full face mask, or prefer the extra stability of a nasal mask over the nasal pillows style. Sometimes less isn’t more, it’s just less. The extra cavity size of a nasal mask makes breathing that little bit easier, and the many innovations in mask design have made these masks smaller, lighter, and far more comfortable than before.
And features like the Eson diffuser add the extra bonus of keeping your bed partner from being disturbed by the excess air from your mask. (I personally call it the “Happy Wife, Happy Life” feature for the brownie point it gets me.)
Check out the Fisher Paykel Eson, the ResMed AirFit N10, and the Circadience SleepWeaver or Elan cloth masks, to see some brilliant advances in mask design.
Note: If you have nasal obstruction or cannot sleep with your mouth closed please consider the masks shown in our Full Face Mask section.
